The PCM-A10 High-Resolution Audio Recorder from Sony is small, lightweight, and capable of recording audio from its built-in 3-way mics in up to 96 kHz/24-bit PCM or 320 kBps MP3 files. It has 16GB of internal memory and supports external memory via its microSD memory card slot. The PCM-A10's 3-way adjustable microphone array allows you to choose zoom mode to record meetings, XY for music sessions, and wide stereo for outdoor events.

The recorder is powered by a rechargeable battery and you can enjoy up to 15 hours of use (in high-quality LPCM 96 kHz/24-bit recording mode) with just one charge. Other features include: the REC Remote app for easy smartphone control (available on iTunes and Google Play), Bluetooth wireless playback for headphones or speaker connectivity, and a rehearsal function for automatically adjusting the recording levels.

The PCM-A10 High-Resolution Audio Recorder is plug-and-play and lets you plug your recorder into your computer for easy charging and cable-free transfer of your recordings. Also included is the Sound Organizer 2 computer application software (stored in the built-in memory) along with a windscreen and a carrying case.
